The January 5-6th Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn lights up a new pathway and will be helping to unfold a new storyline in our lives.
This is a powerful time for new beginnings, however we have to stay open to see exactly what new beginnings the Universe has in store for us. The path ahead may not be what it seems, so we have to keep listening and stay plugged in to the guidance of the Universe.
Think of your life path like a tree with many branches. They all reach to the sky, but there are numerous ways to get there.
Some branches are strong and straight, and others are crooked and bent. There is no right or wrong, there is only adventure, travel, and exploration for this short journey we call life.
On this Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, a new branch of your tree will become clearer and you will have the option to see where it may lead you. This branch may take you in a totally new direction, or it may simply give you a helping hand on the path you are already on.
This is powerful energy and indicates the start of a new cycle. We have several Capricorn Eclipses on the way this year, so this Solar Eclipse in January will help to set the tone and pave the way for the journey to come.
It is not going to be possible to understand the entire pathway when it first emerges, it will take time, and we will need to trust the timing of the events that unfold.
While we may not have the full story, if we open ourselves, if we open our hearts and trust our intuition, we may feel ourselves being called in a particular direction.
The year ahead lays before us with so much opportunity and potential, and if we listen, and if we take a moment to pause, we will hear which way we are being guided to travel.
Following this Eclipse, we enter into the Eclipse Gateway or Portal, which is the time between Eclipses.
The next Eclipse comes on January 20th and this will be a Blood Moon Eclipse in Leo. This Eclipse is extremely potent, which is why it would be wise to use the gentler energy of the Solar Eclipse to recharge, dream big, aim high, and to think about your future.
Whatever wishes you make during the Solar Eclipse at the start of the month will help the Universe to know what to clear and move away for you during the Lunar Eclipse at the end of the month.
By making space, the Universe will be able to deliver you to more of the opportunities and potentials that are on offer for you.
Overall, the Partial Solar Eclipse is going to be setting the stage. While we may not have the whole picture, we will start to feel and see new opportunities and new pathways opening up for us.
We may feel pulled in a new direction or we may feel possibilities and pathways where we once saw barriers and walls. We may also feel the desire to make some much needed changes in our lives, and to set course on a new mission.
Change is definitely a theme around this Solar Eclipse, so stay open and see what changes the Universe brings your way, or feel into the changes you are being guided to make.
The time to open your heart, mind, and soul is now. Open up and see the new potential that is before you. The energy will be strong as the Sun and Moon meet, so use it to start over, to rebirth yourself, and to immerse yourself into the new energies that 2019 will bring.
Stay hopeful about the future and know that there is a new and glowing pathway opening up for you.
Don’t worry too much about which direction to go in or what steps to take, just let yourself be called to action; know that you can dream big and aim high.
There are infinite possibilities in this realm, all you need to do is open yourself to see them. Once you do, you will see that anything is possible and that you are capable of anything.
We all spend so much time worrying about what our purpose is, but our true purpose is to just be ourselves and to follow what is true in our hearts.
You don’t find your purpose, YOU ARE YOUR purpose. Everything you do is your purpose, and the more you can align with that and know your purpose is within, the more you will begin to feel with purpose in your life.
Get out of your comfort zone, change up your routine, and see how this Solar Eclipse helps to bring new sparkle and opportunity into your life.
JANUARY FULL MOON
The very first full moon of the year is known in many cultures as the Full Wolf Moon, which is appropriate given the deep, ancient ties between wolves and January’s full moon. For instance, the Gaelic word for January, Faoilleach, comes from the term for wolves, faol-chù, even though wolves haven’t existed in Scotland for centuries. The Saxon word for January is Wulf-monath, or Wolf Month. Meanwhile, the festival of the Japanese wolf god, Ooguchi Magami, is held in January. The Seneca tribe links the wolf so strongly to the moon, they believe that a wolf gave birth to the moon by singing it into the sky. Just why are wolves so strongly associated with January’s full moon?
The most obvious answer is because wolves are much louder and more noticeable in January, which is when breeding season begins. Wolves begin to howl more frequently and aggressively to establish their territory, threatening neighbors and enemies alike to stay far away from their breeding grounds. A small pack of wolves may even try to make themselves seem like a larger pack by howling together. While a lone wolf can sustain a howl for the duration of a single breath, an entire pack may howl in unison for longer than two minutes during breeding season.
While it makes sense for the haunting howls of wolves to be more memorable during January, how did wolves come to be associated with the full moon itself? Everyone is familiar with the iconic image of a wolf raising its head and howling at the full moon – but do wolves actually sing to the moon? While that might be a romantic idea, there’s no scientific evidence that links wolves to the lunar cycle. Humans may have begun to associate wolves with the moon simpy because they are nocturnal animals that are very active at night. In addition, wolves do raise their heads in the direction of the sky so their howls can travel over far distances to reach their pack mates as they roam. Instead of singing to the moon, they’re actually singing to their friends.
In fact, wolves are so well-known for their tight-knit communities that the Sioux tribe called January’s full moon the Moon Where Wolves Run Together. The wolf is often seen as a symbol of loyalty and protection in many cultures. The Wolf Moon is the perfect time for you to reach out to loved ones and reaffirm your connections, in preparation for deepening your bonds and taking on new challenges together over the upcoming year.
That said, lone wolves are also entirely capable of overcoming hostile conditions on their own with their resourcefulness. According to Celtic mythology, the wolf is infused with lunar power, which refers to its ability to sniff out hidden insights or knowledge, and to detect unexpected sources of danger. In some legends, the wolf even swallows the sun so the wolf can bask in the moon’s overflowing lunar power! The Full Wolf Moon is a great time for you to plan out clever ways to achieve your goals for the upcoming year. Trust your wolfish instincts when it comes to decisions, but also be tenacious in searching for useful knowledge that will help you realize your masterplan.
